Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I was guarantor for my son when he had a room in a shared house. He caused some damage to the room so when he left, the landlord sent me a bill. However he has charged over and above the cost of replacement furniture, and labour costs. (£800 to paint a bedroom ) total was £1500.
I paid half, which to my mind is still more than the actual costs.
He has now threatened to take me to court. I am confident that the amount I paid covers the cost of furniture and labour.
My question is, will a court agree that he can charge me whatever he wants?
If a hearing goes in my favour, will I have any court costs? He is not a private landlord but is a letting agency.
